In the Main Features section of the review it seems there is a carryover error from the Seventeam ST-650P-AF review.

Seems like a nice PSU! I specially like the high efficiency at 20% load.

Cheers

Fixed. Thanks Merman for pointing this out...

Yes, it is a nice unit for its price tag.

Default PSU wire thickness problem

I'm thinking about getting the Rosewill Green Series 630 W (RG630-S12) PSU, but, according to this review: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/artic...y-Review/881/1

it's peripheral and sata power connector wires are not thick enough (only 20AWG).

How important is that thickness? Is it dangerous? Will I be able to run multiple hdds and dvd players?

This is the only thing preventing me from buying this. Otherwise I will have to go with a more expensive antec or xfx.

it is not really much of an issue. Just don't daisychain tons of drives on a single strand, just to be safe.
But even then you wouldn't really have issues.

In theory the lower gauge may cause voltages to drop below the minimum allowed. However we tested this unit and it performed well, and we saw no problem with it. In fact, we gave it our Golden Award. So you can buy this unit without worrying about the thickness of the wire.

Best of all,
Gabriel.

Does this PSU come with a power cord/cable? I know some other Green series don't.

Gee, I don't remember. This review is from one and a half year ago.
